Industrial Filtration for the Asphalt/Hotmix Industry

The asphalt manufacturing process consists of drying and heating aggregate (crushed rock, gravel, reclaimed asphalt pavement or sand) and filler (dust, fly-ash, lime or baghouse fines) and combining them with approximately 5% by weight of heated bitumen.

The two types of asphalt manufacturing plants are batch plants and drum-mixing plants. Particulate emissions generated from batch or drum-mixing plants are typically collected in a cyclone followed by a baghouse or wet scrubber.

SUN Filter understands and appreciates that your asphalt plant cannot function and be profitable if the baghouse is not running optimally. By partnering with a company with over 40 years of experience in this industry, has a knowledgeable staff and field presence, you are sure to get the most beneficial advice.
